    Where did you say Bush comes in with telling the French what to do?
    They've gotten so used to saying everything is Bush's fault, even after years of Obama, that they just can't help themselves? What I do remember is Obama arguing with the G8 in 2009/2010 that they should be spending more money - not less. I remember the other countries politely disagreeing but saying they would do as they saw fit, and he should do the same. So trillions have now been added to our debt, bringing it to over $17 trillion. What did all that spending gain us - there are now nearly 48 million people on food stamps, and heaven knows how many on other government assistance programs; a lack of well-paying jobs; an unemployment number that is still higher than any Bush ever had; crumbling infrastructure; and a public that is angry. No other country in history has owed so much money to so many people as we currently do. So who was correct - Obama or the other G8 countries that decided that a little cutting back on spending was necessary, and followed through?

    Yes, even after years of Obama the economic collapse and the Iraq war were still caused by Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuush. That's how it will go down in history.

    Yep, and its not just the money. Then we have cops coming out to looters and rioters that our nation has handled just fine in the past without all the military gear, with the far more militant type authority seen on the battlefield, and used against foreigners, now being used on the streets of America against US citizens, with the blessing of fruit cakes not just on this board. Our liberties are at far more risk right here domestically by a growing, in every aspect imaginable government, and those that would support it. You might notice that the very same people who think this is just fine also have issues with people who expose government secrets of other ways our liberties are being challenged and violated. It's not difficult to discern who the enemies of liberty are.

    These sick freaks don't care if all you're doing is handing out meals and blankets. If they think they can get money off of threatening your life, they'll take ya. Some people are just too damn stupid to realize that wearing a "Red Cross" or "Press" badge DOES NOT protect you anymore. Not with these psychopaths!
    Well yes you can make that argument. But it's not as though she picked a country in the midst of a civil war (well actually president Assad is fighting a US backed war on terror) to holiday in. But point taken.

    Ok, you have that same response every time, and then I come back with the clarification that I know that the bickering in the ME predates US existence. But that being the powerful country that America is, we who alone have such capabilities, have gone into this region that ****ing needs hard asses like Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad in the positions they are/were in to keep the fringe psychopaths at bay. And have removed them!!! Which is directly responsible for the elbow room, the room for these freaks to blossom. It's absolute insanity. Dude, you don't support Obama's policies, your halfway there. THE US CANNOT, IS IMPOTENT TO, BRING DEMOCRACY TO THE ME. So you needn't tell me anymore that the Middle East was fighting before we came along, I know that, OBL knew that, that dude that threw his shoes at Bush, knew that, Ron Paul knows that, Noam Chomsky knows that. We all also know that US policy has fanned the flames, thrown fuel to the fire.

    You'd be fooling yourself if you think it started under Obama.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I never said it started under Bo peep.....I said it had grown 58% more than what it was with him.

    From 2010 to 2013 is under who's Term? Why has it grown 3 times more from when he first was elected?

    Oh and lets not forget that it is BO who increased the risk of All Americans overseas. In uniform and out. All Business Interests too.

    That came from the Release of the Fab 5 he negotiated for Bergdahl.

    Yes, it didn't start under Bush nor will it end anytime soon under someone else. But jeepers, the Bush Administration--more than any other POTUS--deserves a lot of blame for what is happening now.



    1: That isn't why we invaded Iraq.
    Don't be silly. It's an analogy. I though it would easily get my point across. Apologies.

    2: You tried to blame the fact that there were terrorists that were basically fighting the US due to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. If that were true then we wouldn't have had 9/11 happen until after those wars started.
    Never said there was no hate before. But believe it or not, it's scary worse now thanks primarily to Chaney, Rumsfeld et al.
